Earphones. Literally couldn't work without them! Between our developers we just kid of look at each other, and if you see someone in the zone you leave them alone. If we have a question, we'll use Skype and wait for a reply rather than interrupt them.

Maybe our problem is that we still think everything is pretty urgent!

Some of my coworkers make a lot of noise and we have no space to isolate ourself.

Clacky keyboards are starting to become in vogue in our space. Earphones are an absolute must unless we want to constantly have a tug of ware between folks' different preferences.

Yeah, I'm the one who use a loud keyboard. I realise that I piss off my team. But it helps me to be more productive at work, I just don't care.

I'm guilty of that, using my mechanical keyboard instead of the bit of plastic we get from IT...
